Geopiste

Geopiste is a science lab for geosciences and geography. We offer schools an opportunity to visit Kumpula campus where students can participate in various geoscience and geography related activities (i.e. gis-practicals and field research) free of charge.

Find out more about our other science labs in here.

Note that all our visits are virtual at the moment because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The purpose of group visits is to expand pupils’ and students´ understanding of and thinking about geography, to inform them of the study prospects in geography and to introduce them to the latest research methods. Visits are also desinged to support the latest syllabus thus supporting also teachers in their work.

During a typical visit, an upper-secondary school group will find out about the research, studies and facilities of the degree programme in geography and geosciences and complete assignments using GIS-software for example ArcQis Online or QGis. 

Currently we´re offering visits only in finnish. You can find out more about them in here (page in finnish).
